There's this really great scene when Sheik Amar demonstrates his "courage"...by hiding behind a cage of clucking chickens.
Amar: Shut up! Shut up!
When Tamina uses her connections to get Dastan and herself some disguises, and Dastan is forced to carry a really "large" man around on his chair.
After Dastan fails trying to preform a difficult backflip.
Dastan: The third step is the hardest!
Tus and Dastan discuss Dastan's need to give a gift to their father. A gift which is currently missing...
Tus: You do have a gift to honor him with?
Dastan: Of course. (looks over to Bis) Bis gift!
Bis: (looks up confused) What?
Dastan: ...It's been momentarily misplaced.
One word, Outtakes!
After Dastan presents Tamina to Sharaman and requests that he order her to marry Tus (as Tus requested he do). Sharaman decides Dastan should be the lucky man instead. Poor Dastan is left speechless, his father? Not so much.
Sharaman: He plunges into a hundred foes without thought, but before marriage he stands frozen with fear! And there are those who say he is not yet wise!
The game handwaves Game Over and continues by having the Prince, who is narrating the game events, get confused and backpedal on his story. So one must assume he narrated along the lines of, "And then I tripped and fell into the spikes..." before correcting himself.
